Available light portrait photography workshop

The next instalment in our series “Leicester photography workshops” is an available light portrait photography workshop.  Available light portrait photography is a tricky subject. A lot of people think it is easier than using flash. The light is always there, so how hard can it be?


Well, there is a lot more to it than just sticking with what you are given. During this short workshop, we will look at how to utilise the light we are given, how to plan your shoot to get the best results and ways to manipulate the available light.


We will cover;


The types of available light

How to place your subject in relation to the light source

How to manipulate the light

What to do in harsh light

How to cope in low light

What are Leicester Photography Workshops

These workshops are a way for us to teach people with an interest in photography (whether it’s amateur or professional) in bite-sized chunks at an affordable rate. This will be run on Sunday, August 6, 2017 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM.There’s plenty of parking, tea, coffee and of course biscuits. Most importantly the emphasis for these workshops is to have fun whilst learning. We’re friendly and approachable and will ensure the content is varied to be useful to those just starting out and also helpful to those who make a living taking photos. This session is going to be focusing on how to pose your model
